Ever since I first visited Poland at the age of ten, I’ve been a firm believer in its value as a destination to visit. Not just for a cheap city break or boozy stag-do to Krakow, but also to see some of its lesser known towns, cities and picturesque countryside.
Counting my most recent trip in June, I’ve now been to Poland five times and each visit has brought me to new places and resulted in plenty of new experiences. I’ve visited spectacular castles, toured the most amazing salt mines, learnt so much about European history and visited many of its prominent sites, tried all sorts of culinary specialties including pickled herrings, pierogi and the iconic polish soup borscht, as well as spending time among locals learning about the culture first-hand.
From the sandy shores of Sopot and beautiful hanseatic Gdansk, to the busy hub of Warsaw and elegant Krakow in the south, Poland has so much to offer. If you don’t believe me, here are 23 photos that will make you want to visit Poland.
So, what do you think? Have I convinced you to add Poland to your bucketlist? If you are contemplating a visit and want some tips or advice on where to go or what to see, please get in touch as I’d love to help!
Maybe you’ve been to Poland before and have some suggestions of where I should visit on my next trip? As always I’d love to hear from you, so please do let me know in the comments below! Victoria x
